June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Ice Cream Dream

If you are coming from Nikka's Blog, you are on the right track!  Should you get lost along the way, please visit Melinda's Blog for a complete list of bloggers.

This month there are 50+ Close To My Heart Consultants featuring this fun stamp set, "Ice Cream Dream".  I have already made a few fun things with it but am excited to create more!  It is one of those must-have stamp sets!  And did you know you can get it for just $5 with a $50 purchase?  It's true.  You can.  Just contact me or your Independent Consultant to place yours on your June order.
I absolutely love the look of this finished project (card) and hope you do too!  Of course, the photos never do the artwork justice.  I incorporated the Polka Dot textured background using our embossing folder on Cotton Candy cardstock.  Then, I did incorporate the "Bit of Blot" technique I highlighted on this blog post - click HERE - which is shown on page 55 in the Annual Inspirations Idea Book.  It truly is fun so I encourage you to try it; the more blots, the better.
I used our ShinHan markers to color in part of the sentiment and the sundae.  Doesn't it look yummy?  To finish off the card, I added some Lagoon Hearts Washi Tape (applying it to White Daisy cardstock first and then cutting a dovetail) and some Pixie Extra Thick Twine.  Both the sentiment and the sundae are 3-D.

Would love for you to leave a comment to let me know what you think of my card.  It is always fun to read people's comments.  Then, head on over to Judy Faye's Blog to see what she has up her sleeve.  No doubt there is going to be some fun stuff shared in this hop!

Happy hoppin'!

    1. Funny story, Carol, I didn't really appreciate washi as much until I started putting it on (usually) white cardstock. :) It sure makes it easy to work with! Thanks for your comment!

  13. I love your card. The Bit of Blot is perfect on your card. I was inspired by the Bit of Blot hop you participated in a few days ago and included that technique on my card.
